Those seem to be small for plantains. Usually, as Ranvaig said in her
message, they are much larger. There is a smaller banana, smaller than the
standard banana, that's a "finger" banana. Sometimes stores in the States
will carry them...and, if you like bananas, you'll love these. They are
much sweeter than their larger cousins! When I lived in Papua New Guinea,
we could get all three...this was back in the 70's, so I was pleasantly
surprised recently when they started showing up here.
